This salad is an homage to every beautiful vegetable that is sprouting from the ground right now. It’s colorful, bright and hearty. It’s also everything your grandmother’s gloopy, mayonnaise-laden potato salad is not.
Colin and I have been eating this salad for a few days now and one thing he says every time he takes a bite is, “This salad is so good.” He’s my harshest critic especially when it comes to savory cooking (he claims he’s better at it). He’s good, but I practice more often, which means I win.
And the best part of this potato salad is that it lends itself to day-of farmers market creativity. With potatoes as the base, you can pick any other vegetable to join the party. Roasted carrots, beets, garlic scapes, ramps, spring onions–you name it, it’s all fair game.
